Greetings to all,

Please forgive the intrusion -- I am writing because the site I've
created is meant to be a repository of data that would be part of the

project is to build database of wine information, edited by volunteer
editors, and freely available (both for browsing and data dump download)

to anyone for any purpose.  This is a non-profit site (although we will
seek advertising to help defray costs and to reward sites sharing data
with us) modelled after http://www.dmoz.org and http://www.chefmoz.org.

starting to build out the content.

Kind regards,

Chris Opler
